Q: How can I set up the nano3G femtocell as described in "Configuring the ip.access nano3G":http://osmocom.org/projects/cellular-infrastructure/wiki/Configuring_the_ipaccess_nano3G automatically?
56 32 anmu
A: It is possible to use netcat (nc) to pipe the needed commands to the nano3G, assuming it has 192.168.1.20 as IP address:
57 31 anmu
*echo -e 'action 2061\naction 1216\naction establishPermanentHnbGwConnection'|nc -v 192.168.1.20 8090*
